Overview

Rivers have always been of critical importance to man but today, we tend to take them for granted. They provide us our water. They are a habitat for wildlife. They are a recreational outlet. Yet, we take from them and seldom give back. The Broad River flows from the Blue Ridge Mountains and empties into the Atlantic tidewaters. For Native Americans, it was a pathway from the foothills to the sea. Its meandering course and mild currents made travel along it relatively easy. Today, the river's importance to natural ecosystems and to our needs is understood more fully. Its scenic and recreational importance is also understood, Parts of the river in South Carolina have been designated a "state scenic river". In 1994, citizens of Cleveland County galvanized into action to preserve part of the Broad River near Boiling Springs, NC. In a unique public/private partnership, a 448-acre tract of land along the both sides of a stretch of 1.5 miles of river was purchased and deeded to Cleveland County and the Town of Boiling Springs. A governing volunteer body, the Broad River Council, was formed to manage it. Since that time, the council has guided the development of what is called the Broad River Greenway, following a twenty-year master plan. Shelters, picnic areas, handicapped accessible trails and additional property acquisition have been the initial priorities.

We hiked here twice. There is a small entrance fee to enter the park. We met the ranger who was very friendly and informative. Their Little Free Library is a must see at the parking lot.

I recently discovered the Broad River Greenway. The trails wind through the wood along Broad River. There are picnic tables in different areas in case you want to pack a lunch and have a picnic by the river.

Fantastic day! Some of the family went tubing while the rest relaxed in the shade on the river bank. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and then walking on the scenic trails. Can't wait to visit again!
